Shout out to all the people who celebrate 4/20 with a joint or numerous joints in hand, your hustle is valid. To help you bring out the best on this day, we decided to create a playlist of some of the dopest 4/20 related tracks created by Nigerian musicians. With an outstanding 4 fearutes is President of the 4/20 Nigerian association, Burna Boy!
Blaze– MI Abaga Feat. Jesse Jagz, Ice Prince & Blaise
Shoutout MI for being on the wave since 2008. If we didn’t consider him an OG before then unfortunately this solidifies his status in the conversation. Make sure you raise them lighters high up today and don’t let anything stop you from puffing it today.
Gimme Dat– Ice Prince Feat. Burna Boy, Yung L & Olamide
Back when Ice Prince was a force to be reckoned with he brought in Burna, Yung L and Olamide for a 4/20 Hall of Famer. Make sure you’re on some of that thing that’ll blow your mind today.
Smoke– Burna Boy
Burna been about this life straight from the jump. Smoke is off one of his early mixtapes, Best of the Burn Series Volume One and on this track he’s very straight to the point and asks just how much you’d like to engage with some premium weed.
Rizzla– Burna Boy
Have you noticed Burna is on every track on this playlist yet? This was one of the bigger tracks off his second album, On a Spaceship and Burna requests the rizzla so he can unlock some of the ginger which might have been absent as a result of his clear headedness.
Burning Bush (In Memory of Hadiza Aboki)– Jesse Jagz
On Volume One of Jagz Nation, Thy Nation Come, Jesse Jagz sang about baking up while also giving tribute to a friend called Hadiza Aboki. The type of reggae track that reminds you of Bob Marley and makes you wanna keep hitting them Js till you can no more.
Re-Up– Emtee Feat. Wizkid & AKA
South African MC, Emtee knew to look no further than the King of Afro-Pop if he was trying to make a hit about smoking that dank. Despite my lack of understanding of whichever language it is that Emtee bursts into, this track is just right for that smoke-up, today and any other day. Roll up the weed one time and yeah, hotbox till the spliff is gone too!
Omo Wobe Anthem– Olamide Feat. Burna Boy
Shout out all the proud Omo Wobes. On his latest album, The Glory, your president released your anthem and reminded you all to stay true to your identity. If you’ve been doing this omo wobe thing right, 4/20 is just another day for you cos you’re supposed to be smoking that weed till you’re on cloud nine and then complimenting it by downing a couple bottles of that shekpe every day. Cross faded team, you’re in charge.
